(NEWSER) – Heads up, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie: Mitt Romney said today that he may run for president in 2016, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Sources say he made the announcement at a meeting with Republican donors in New York City. "Mitt told the group of 30 or so guys that were there that he is considering a run for the White House and that they could go tell their friends," a source from the meeting tells CNN. Romney cited trouble overseas and the long-term economy as motives for running, but gave no timetable for deciding.
Romney had been iffy on whether to run after losing in 2008 and 2012, CNN says, but had a change of mind over the past few weeks.
